Hi all, I have the HT2000W router set up off the power grid in a physically challenging (access, space, etc.) environment. Power is derived from DC solar and batteries. It dawned on me that the power currently goes from DC, to a third-party AC converter, to the router plug, which is then converted back to DC for the router. This DC to AC to DC conversion is a waste of power and space and considerably complicates the system. In another posting, I read the below: "I use only dc. Is there a way to connect the modem directly to a dc source of power?" No. the power brick produces several DC voltages from the AC source. I have not taken a volt meter to determine what they are in this particular instance, but the common power brick usually produces anywhere from 3 to 6 various DC voltages that range from -/+5vdc to -/+48vdc. and are used for isolated purposes within the equipment. It might even pass 120VAC through to the modem in addition to the DC. As I said, I just haven't checked to see what it is providing. How would I go about removing the AC part of the power supply?
